Downtown Music is pleased to announce its newest joint venture with Philadelphia impresario Diplo’s label, Mad Decent. Grammy-nominated DJ & producer Diplo was first recognized as one half of the genre-defining DJ Crew Hollertronix and the mastermind behind his now legendary mixtape with M.I.A., Piracy Funds Terrorism. In 2006, Mad Decent opened its doors as a vehicle to break new artists discovered by Diplo from his travels around the world. From Brazil to Baltimore, artists such as Bonde do Role, Blaqstarr, Rye Rye, Crookers, Boy 8 Bit and South Rakkas Crew have come into the dance/hip-hop/electronic scene under Diplo’s watchful eye. Becoming a household name amongst the bloggerati and musical tastemakers, Diplo has created an environment with Mad Decent that supercedes the common role of record label and has become a cultural curator. Mad Decent now joins forces with one of todays most illustrious and lauded labels, Downtown Records, to bring even more great music into the hands and hearts of fans all over the world.
